Jordan River Village: The place in the Middle East where seriously
ill children - can just be kids.

We seek to enrich the lives of children of all ethnic and religious backgrounds, ages
9-18 in the region, suffering from serious illnesses and
life-threatening conditions. We do this by creating free, fun-filled, memorable and medically safe camping experiences.

"Our Village”
The Jordan River Village is a state-of-the-art facility that provides children with a once-in-a-lifetime camping experience.


The many activities of the Jordan River Village continue and while 2014 is drawing to a close, we are currently hard at work preparing for another challenging and inspiring year at the JRV.

Over the past summer, more than 500 children from around the country as well as from the Palestinian Authority enjoyed the many fun-filled camp facilities.

The 35th session of 2014 has just ended, and we are already preparing the landmark celebrations of the upcoming 100th session since the start of the JRV’s operations.

We are also very excited that the heated swimming pool has opened and are sure that all the children in the coming winter months will take great pleasure in using it.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the "Jordan River Village team", our wonderful volunteers, the great youngsters of the "Shnat Sherut" (year of community service between graduation and the army) and of course to all the members of the Board that support and assist us – all for the benefit of the amazing children.

Wishing us all continued achievements,
